Old Photos

The New Hampshire Historical Society in Concord is offering "Digitizing Documents and Photographs: A Workshop" on June 11. This from the flyer:
Representatives from the Northeast Document Conservation Center will be leading this workshop and addressing such issues as how to prepare documents and photographs for digitization, best practices for digitization, choosing appropriate equipment based on your budget and computer set-up, and tips for making quality digital images of the documents and photographs you want to preserve for generations to come.

If you have been thinking about digitizing your family's photos and documents, this workshop would be a good place to start.

I find old photos fascinating, and I was pleased to come across two Facebook pages devoted to sharing old photos: Old Photo Archive, and New Hampshire--Then and Now, which is devoted to NH photos, old and new. You could very well find yourself spending hours on each page!

Be sure to visit our copllection, too, where we have Family Photo Detective: Learn How to Find Genealogy Clues in Old Photos and Solve Family Photo Mysteries by Maureen Alice Taylor [929.1072 TAY] and How to Archive Family Photos: A Step-by-Step Guide to Organize and Share Your Photos Digitally by Denise May Levenick [745.593 MAY].
